Q.840

Nassim Nicholas Taleb, that angry philosopher of our times, has a new book, the title of which he describes thus:
"Some things benefit from shocks; they thrive and grow when exposed to volatility, randomness, disorder, and stressors and love adventure, risk, and uncertainty. Yet, in spite of the ubiquity of the phenomenon, there is no word for the exact opposite of ____. Let us call it anti____. Anti____ is beyond resilience or robustness. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the anti____ gets better.
What word completes the blanks to give the title of the book?
